Chris Cornell

Today we lost a great musician. He was one of the first rock albums I listened to that I could relate to. He also was one of the best vocalist I have heard in my life time. Soundgarden brought me closer to many of the friends I have today! Seeing various concerts and just rocking out to some good music. Chris Cornell is a legend and will be missed!

Free comic book day is here!

Check out your local comic book shops! for some of the best reads you can find.

It’s Free Comic book Day!

Each year there is free comic day around the country (probably more often than this). So I load up on all the comics that I love and also grab the ones that the local shops are giving out. Here are some Comics series I recommend reading both digital and printed (If you are fan of digital comics, Comixology has quite a few in there free comic section and Unlimited that you can read your fill of):

Current Reads:

Wonder Woman Earth One
Iron Fist
Ms. Marvel Vol 1.
The Walking Dead
Suicide Squad
Justice League Origin

Some suggestions:

I always try to read some of the odd comics that I don’t hear much about or well not openly discussed. Here are the ones that I enjoyed:

28 Days Later - This is one of my favorite series. I am a fan of the movie and this series of graphic novel did not disappoint.

Bitch Planet - I was a little put off by the title but the main protagonist in this one is definitely worth the read.

HP Lovecraft: The Dunwich Horror - I am always up for a good horror story so this one is par for the course. The dark details are what's most captivating for me.

GAME REVIEW: Resident Evil 7

Finally got around to finishing up Resident Evil 7. (I know, I know I'm late. Sorry, the procrastinator in me one this battle.) I played it on several modes (not all modes) just to get the feel of the game and of course get some of the missing items or replay a portion of the game that I felt I performed miserably. To be fair, I died countless times for what seemed like the stupidest reasons.

The game actually starts off similar to a horror movie, some random message from your girlfriend who has been missing for years apparently. You go searching for her and what do you know? You get trapped in a house with a bunch of un-dying crazies trying to keep you there and/or kill you. Playing as Ethan you have to make your way through the house then outside to "freedom" more or less.

Without going into too much detail for those who have not played it, I actually love this style of gaming for Resident Evil. I have played just about all of them and this is one of my favorites as far as game play goes. Let me explain why. 

First, with this Resident Evil you are not able to play in 3rd person, if you really want to see the view from 3rd person check out this Youtube demo. It is 1st person view all the way through. This I have read is to engulf you in the full concept of the horror genre/feel of the game. Not going to lie I jumped a few times, probably had some really bad heart palpitations due to the fact I was working myself up over expectations more or less. But I digress. Secondly, unlike some of the other Resident Evils which were more of an Horror Survival shooters, you can easily say this is Horror Survival Puzzle-Adventure in movie style. There are some guns involved but not an overwhelming amount where it detracts from the main premise of the game. Lastly, within this installment your primary protagonist is a Civilian. Most of the other protagonist have been police or worked/created by Umbrella in some fashion. There is of course the puzzle aspect of the game, figuring out how to escape the maze like house. Some of the clues are pretty obvious to get to your next objective and some or a bit more tricky. 

I do have to say the plot/ending was some what 'Silent Hill' -ish. basically (spoiler if you haven't played it to the end) a creepy infected little girl is trying to kill you for ruining her family, well the family she technically kidnapped. I was honestly thinking this was going to be a full on assault (didn't read any reviews before hand) by Umbrella Corps but no. I was not disappointed in having to fight the creepy hell spawn child. It is more than reminiscent to the previous Resident Evil monsters were they mutate at some point and try to kill you, but whats better than shooting creepy little demon children, right? 

Interestingly enough, you're saved but it it leads to more questions on your savior and what the hell he is doing with the infamous corporation who started this debacle in the first place. Overall, I am definitely going to play this game again. I will be playing the other  DLCs and any other release. Hopefully this will continue in the series versus being an ending to the series.
